You use 2 box mixes to make these red velvet brownies.

A lot of red velvet brownies have cream cheese in them.

This one is simple version and my favorite. I like it better than a regular brownie!

They are SO incredibly MOIST!

I’ve gotten many requests for this recipe! And, these sell really well at fairs!

You can dress them up for holidays with a frosting and sprinkles if you like.

They are SO EASY and FAST to make!
